    Specifically, i want to know what kind of power it's going to have, how moddable it will be, and whether or not the wagon will get the turbos in the US.

    The forester turbo is coming out the end of the year, so the legacy shouldnt be to far behind.

    The forester turbo is gona have:
    210 Horsepower @ 5,600 rpm, 235 lb-ft of [email protected],600 rpm

    2.5L intercooled and turbocharged w/ variable valve timing

    so like I guess the legacy will get the 2.5L turbo.

    The forester turbo is supposed to be faster than the WRX :bigthumb:

    Faster than the WRX? How is that possible? It's a heavier vehicle and has less horsepower (210 vs 227). Does it have THAT much of a gearing/torque advantage over the WRX or does the power just come on a lot quicker?

    A Legacy done up WRX style would be awesome.

    The forester is like 100-150lbs heavier, than the wrx wagon.

    Then again it's supposed to be faster than the wrx sedan.

    oh yea and it's a 2.5L instead of a 2.0L, so much more power down low. Not some shitty civic when cruisin around town.
